It’s All About Discovery and The Boys: Eclipse Talks Exclusively to Supernatural Writer/Producer Sera Gamble About Season 3

Spoiler Alert!

“The new characters give me the chance to discover all new things about our guys.” Sera Gamble one of the writers and executive producers of the hit CW series Supernatural is talking exclusively to Eclipse Magazine at the 28th Annual San Diego Comic Con held at the San Diego Convention center back in July. The ‘guys’ in question are Sam and Dean Winchester the two main characters of Supernatural who are played by the extremely talented duo of Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. For its first two season, Supernatural focused on the Winchester brother’s quest to find their missing father and to confront the demon responsible for their mother’s death while they criss-crossed the American back roads in their ’67 Chevy Impala loaded with weapons to fight all manner of supernatural threats.

Sam Winchester in particular was of interest to the demon and his plans for creating chaos on earth. Now heading into it’s 3rd season and with one demon dealt with but a whole army of demons left to contain, Supernatural is adding two new regular recurring characters and Sera Gamble gives Eclipse Magazine the inside scoop on what’s going down for Sam and Dean Winchester when the new girls hit the ground running.

The two new characters are Ruby (played by Katie Cassidy), who is a demon hunter like the Winchester brothers, but with an very dangerous maverick, unstable nature and Bela (played by Lauren Cohan), who is mercenary out to make money by taking advantage of being in possession of items that hunters need to fight the demons and other supernatural creatures. How much of a part of the main thrust of the stories will Bela and Ruby play into and what does this mean for the two existing main characters of Sam and Dean Winchester.

“Ruby and Bela tend to fit into different kinds of stories, at least in the first part of the new season,” Sera Gamble tells Eclipse. “Ruby plays a role in the hunter war, while Bela begins her arc as more of a supernatural opportunist who couldn’t care less about hunting. What’s all this going to it mean for Sam and Dean Winchester was fore most on the minds of Eclipse readers and Sera Gamble gives us the lowdown in very succinct terms. “Mostly, it means trouble,” she tells us with a mischievous smile. Yet that doesn’t mean Gamble doesn’t understand and sympathize with some fan reaction to the announcement of these new characters into the Supernatural mix. Quite the contrary, she is very much in tune with fans and viewers concerns.

“I have to say, I know fans are really worried about the new characters, and I do get where they’re coming from,” Sera Gamble acknowledges. “I’ve watched shows and been way annoyed by new characters. But I think people are going to dig Ruby and Bela more than they expect to. At least I hope so, because we’ve been having lots of fun writing them. Ben Edlund wrote the episode that introduces Bela. I was laughing so hard I was crying when we broke that story. She puts the boys in such a deliciously bad situation,” Gamble says with a smile. “I’m hoping that our audience will appreciate the new elements Bela and Ruby bring into the boys’ stories. It’s good stuff. I believe they represent a deepening and an expansion of the world we’re already in. They support the story we’re telling this season, rather than distracting from it. Even though they’re hot chicks.”
